morsi. the other protesters have taken to the streets to demonstrate against the new president. is the white house doing if you have to respond to the situation? is it even a situation we have to be involved in? stein yates is former deputy assistant for vice president of national security affairs. steven welcome. >> thank you. >> jamie: president morsi presented a new constitution. what does it provide and what concern if any should the u.s. have? >> well, among the key concer concerns is the notion that he is not subject to judicial review. in any normal democratic system where there are checks and balances you would have legislative check and judicial check among others on act of an overact as executive. what we see with mohammed morsi, leader of the muslim brotherhood is after winning a narrow election he is using every tool at his disposal to make generational impact by way of what he says. >> jamie: when i watch the pictures and i see both sides protesting, i wonder to myself so much was sacrificed for what the people there wanted. free society, ability to livepeacefully
the compound in the post. left while it was going on. aids said it was the end of a working day. mr. morsi did not flee. he does not live inside the compound. [ inaudible ] next up for the country is a referendum december 15. the nation will vote on a constitution, the draft of which has been bitterly criticized like something that was rushed through and favors islamist parties. it's likely that morsi supporters from the muslim brotherhood will push hard to get out a yes vote and get out the vote in general. it's not clear at this point whether the opposition will vote nowhere no. or abstain. president morsi got a boost today. he has been battling with the judges. today, supreme judiciary council said they would oversee the referendum. this gives a new constitution air of legitimacy and a blow for the opposition. bret, back to you. >> bret: steve harrigan live in cairo. steve, thank you. iran says it has captured another u.s. drone. iranian tv showed an image that said was aircraft that entered the air space over the persian gulf. both the u.s. navy and c.i.a. insist it's not one of theirs. ot
quickly to egypt. a lot of difficult scenarios there developing, with president morsi, apparently, showing a few traits of mubarak, with the executive orders he's giving himself. did he need to do this? and what is the fallout going to be here? the big protests all through cairo are the eruptions in egypt. >> he blew it. first of all, the grab for power from the judges. he compounded that today, by allowing his people, the muslim brotherhood to go out and crack heads. several people appear to have been killed. he's made things worse for himself. but that said, this is the first inning in a long game. i notice the stock market actually rose today, notwithstanding this. i think this was a bad sign for morsi. but i wouldn't make too much of it. >> quick question on this, larry. the arab spring promised so much. >> right. >> how are you feeling about it now? >> that's tragedy. i was in favor of the arab spring. this whole morsi story, this guy appears not to be a democrat, small "d." he appears to have dictatorial instincts. egypt was a secular muslim country. say what you will about mubarak.

[ laughter ] >> bill: morsey is morsi is a minor figure right now. >> no. >> bill: he he is he may emerge in a major figure in a bad or good way. he could broker peace that would be good. he could try to take over egypt and rule as islamic dictator. that would be bad. i don't think he is quite there yet. it's not an absurd contention. all right? but if that is the best we can do, if mohammed morsi is the person of the year on this planet, then we are in bad shape. what about you, kristen, who do you think should be pe
